Kitchen Sink Drama: Art appreciation

Jess knew nothing about art but she knew what she liked. And what she liked was the man standing next to an abstract piece that could have been painted by a child. She thought about crossing the gallery to approach him, but only in the same way she thought about quitting her job, or winning money.

Instead, she studied him from afar – his form, lines, texture – and for a delicious moment she pictured him framed by her bed head. Then he smiled delightedly and kissed a man flush on the lips and Jess realised why art was never her thing.
